UniqueAmongstFieldsWithPrefix validator does not work as advertised

In django/core/, the UniqueAmongstFieldsWithPrefix validator class takes a field_name and a prefix as parameters. However, the validation method itself (in the __call__ function) does not refer to self.prefix and instead seems to be checking that the field being validated is not equal to any field except possibly that given in field_name.

The implementation appears to be doing nothing like what the name says. It is acting more like a hypothetical DifferentFromAllFieldsExcept validator.
